Arsenal Transfer News: Wenger Desperately Plays Up Joel Campbell Signing
Arsene Wenger is a man without a supporter. The win against Udinese did little to quell a side that is slowly bleeding talent all over Europe. So if you listen to Wenger, you will hear the talk of a desperate man.
Great magicians work under the auspices of slight of hand. “Please don’t look at this box, look over there,” they might say.
Well an up and coming magician would do well to take a page from the Arsenal boss. He is putting quite a positive spin on a signing that we may not see the results of for another year or so.
Joel Campbell very well could be a star once he matures with the first-team. His acquisition by Wenger is truly something to be pleased with if you are an Arsenal supporter. Yet, he has failed to bring in a big name that is accomplished.
Therefore, the cagey manger would like you to be thankful for players that may one day turn into big names. He tells reporters the following.
Joel is a young prospect, he has talent and he can play right, left or centrally. We took a gamble on him but, from what we have seen, it is worth taking. Campbell could join the club, Gervinho has joined the club, Carl Jenkinson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have joined the club and people forget that… Sometimes you feel the reputation of the player is punished by the fact he did not have a massive transfer fee. You would like people to look just at the quality of the players and feel if they are Arsenal players or not.
Again, please don’t look over there, look here. Yes, Arsenal may have seen a couple of steady vets go, but the team has some fantastic prospects.
That would make some clubs proud, but this is Arsenal. The Gunners need talent that is ready to star in the league now. Wenger better hope that his young gambles are ready to blossom immediately, because he there is a lot riding on them.
